Picture of the Day 02.10.12 - Mum's Panjeeri

This is the special food my mum made for me this week this week to keep me strong in these challenging last weeks of pregnancy, through labour and during the recovery period afterwards.  It includes almonds, pistachio nuts, cashew nuts, raw sugar, ground ginger powder and various other ingredients.  I posted a recipe for this here along with some other foods that are used post pregnancy.  The recipe my mum used was slightly modified, but tasted really good.  I will get her to explain how she made it this time round and post the recipe and method.

The tub below was the smaller of two containers and I will be having a little each morning.  The other much larger tub is for after the birth (so far I have been sneaking spoonfuls all day).


  1. yummy panjeeri!Take care.

  2. Looks yummy! Im not pregnant but would still love to eat this ;)


  3. JazakhAllah khair for the link to your recipe, I have been trying to find out what all the ingredients were in English, but my in-laws only know the Urdu words.

    I will keep you in my duas for a safe and easy delivery and recovery.

  4. do u have some panjeeri left?
